"We named our son Johnathan & use the nickname Johnny. We chose Johnathan so when he grows up he can choose to be called Johnny, Johnathan or John. He is 6 now and still prefers to be called Johnny. People usually want to leave out the "H" or spell it with an "ie", Jonny or Johnnie or Jonnie or with his full name Jonathan. We have not met many with the same spelling, usually they do not have the "H". My grandfather had John as one of his names and my grandmother always called him Johnny. Family history and the biblical meaning of John is why we chose this spelling." Dec. 29, 2007:
